The Charlotte Podcast · Episode 208 – Hue House Returns
We have been profoundly moved by the death of George Floyd while in police custody and are interested in channeling our frustration and anger into a better way forward as a society and city.
To broaden our understanding of what policy changes could be possible, we spoke this week with Robert Dawkins of Action NC and SAFE Coalition NC. Robert has been advocating for police and criminal justice reform since 2014 and shared his personal experience and specific policy proposals that can reduce police brutality in Charlotte.

We were also joined by a surprise guest to share some details on an upcoming event. The Charlotte Podcast · Episode 206 – 10 Crazy Charlotte Sports Moments
This week we had the pleasure of talking with Tony from Enderly Coffee about his journey to Charlotte, starting a thriving coffee empire, and maybe we touch on what the future could look like for his business.
We also revisit the Mecklenburg Investment Company story as John’s article about it is in the June issue of Charlotte Magazine, and we end with some words of support from the one and only SG.
Many people are calling this week’s episode the FOOTBAW MEGAPOD as features both Jourdan Rodrigue (5:15) of The Athletic and Charlotte 49ers Head Football Coach Will Healy (30:08). We talk NFL draft and doing their jobs in the Age of Quar with both, and we enjoy some football themed history with a discussion of the movie Leatherheads. We end as we always do with some Supportive Words from Supportive Guy.
Still under quarantine, the guys discussed what they’re now grateful for and how they are still trying to stay as Charlotte as possible. They also discussed a very revealing document about the Brooklyn redevelopment.
Today we celebrated a milestone: our 200th episode!
We shared our favorite memories over the past ~120 hours of #content, discussed some of our Hopes and Dreams for the future of the show, and we did it all under the shroud of a global pandemic that threatens our way of life!
We closed with some kind (?) words of congratulations on 200 episodes from friends of the show.
Thanks to everyone who has listened over the years. We love you and we love Charlotte.
